Archbishop Cushley joined 200 guests at Prestonfield House in Edinburgh for the Order of Malta 2024 charity fundraising ball.

The Order, one of the Catholic church's oldest and largest charities, operating in 120 countries around the world, was raising funds for its work in Scotland.

This includes initiatives like Dial-a-Journey in Stirling & Falkirk, that provides a transport service for those with mobility needs who are often unable to use public transport.

The Ball was supported by Lady Celestria Hales and Mark Watson-Gandy, the President and the Chancellor of the Order. Also attending were the Earl and Countess of Mansfield, the Earl of Morton, and Sir Jack and Lady Stewart-Clark.

The Companions of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (CoM) is a key volunteer force for delivering the charitable work of the Order of Malta in Great Britain — a Catholic religious order and charity. Its mission is ‘to practise our faith and to practise charity’.
